The Middy Muscle-Tech 330 Waggler and 300 Feeder Rods come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

Description: two-piece 11 ft waggler and 10 ft feeder rods for carp bagging.

Specifications: Power Arc action; anti-shatter, T-Core carbon blanks; full cork handles; slim, screw-up reel seats; hook retainers; MSC line guides; feeder rod comes with Light and Medium push-in quivertips.

My verdict: these two rods are designed for catching carp on commercial fisheries at this time of year, whether you are using a pellet waggler or a feeder.

The anti-shatter blanks have enough action to avoid hook pulls, and with main line ratings of 10 lb, they’ll easily tame lively carp.

The waggler rod has a casting guide of 25 g, and the feeder 15-56 g.

Shop around and you should be able to pick them up for £60 each.

Prices: Feeder £89.99; Waggler £84.99.
